Please cheer up for me! Sounds like you had a rough day...I am so sorry to hear that.
It looks like its going to be very hard to find somebody like your friend. She truly sounds like a wonderful person that has given you so much. Don't feel bad for wanting to cry. Sometimes its best to let our emotions out so others know how we feel. It also makes us better because we aren't bottling things up inside.
I think you really need to be honest with her. Tell her what you told me in your email. Let her know you love her and she feels like a sister to you. Don't regret anything in life, EVER!!! Tell her why it makes you sad she is leaving, let her know she is more than a friend and most importantly, tell her how much you love her!
I know its hard when it comes to matters of the heart especially with friends. Just remember to be glad you found somebody special that means so much to you.
My life has been far from easy but I always had the ability to find life's positives. Don't think you have lost a friend to Thailand, believe you have made a friend for life! Just because she is going away doesn't mean you still can't be sisters....I think you will find it will be quite the opposite!
Please cheer up for me. I know its been a tough couple of weeks for you but remember to stay positive. Through your own thoughts and actions YOU control the future. FATE is all about keeping all options open and allowing people to touch our very soul (where we feel it the most!) Remember, YOU own the future! Whatever you want to achieve, fulfil or accomplish, you CAN!!!
